October Books-Sandwiched-In

Join the Friends of the Sodus Free Library at noon on Monday, October 17th, as Jean Seymour shares the rich history of the Sodus Bay Lighthouse. While Congress appropriated funding to build the first lighthouse tower and keeper's residence in 1824, by 1869 both structures had deteriorated to the extent that additional funding was designated to build a second lighthouse and to replace the original buildings. The present station was completed in 1871 and was in use until its closing in 1901.* Call 315-483-9292, or stop by to make your reservations. The program's cost is $3, which includes sandwich, beverage, and a slice of homemade pie. The Library opens at 10 a.m. on Mondays, so come early and browse the shelves.
